Doctor Who S7 premiere breaks rating record

Here in America, anyway. Last weekend’s ‘Asylum of the Daleks’ was the most-watched telecast ever for BBC America. 1.6 million viewers tuned in, making it the series best rating for the show since it debuted on the channel in 2009. The show was also up 23% over the 2011 premiere.

Meanwhile, at home in the U.K., the premiere had 6.4 million viewers.
